CELLING Treatment Centers New Clinic Revolutionizes Spinal Care with
Adult Stem Cells
Now open in Austin, Texas, CELLING patients can seek out cutting-edge stem cell treatments
designed to enhance their quality of life.
Austin, TX (Vocus) July 7, 2010 -- The future of medicine has arrived in Texas -- CELLING Treatment Center is
newly open in Austin, providing stem cell therapies for common back and spine disorders. Minimally invasive but
maximally effective, Celling Treatment Center techniques promise to set the new standard for spinal and
Dr. Mark A. Flood, chief surgeon and medical director of the center, said, “Stem cell science has now advanced
to the point where clinical applications in orthopedic and spinal surgery are now a reality.”
CELLING Treatment Centers is poised to become patient’s first choice for non-fusion strategies to treat spinal
disorders and the orthopedic applications of stem cells in conditions of aging and injury. Patients can access a
wide array of top quality conventional and novel treatments for back problems, joint problems, sports injuries and
more. And while conventional fusion approaches can often result in painful failure, minimally invasive
approaches are much more promising for both fixing the back and for avoiding post-surgical complications.
Dr. Flood is a pioneer in the use of stem cells in concert with minimally invasive approaches to orthopedic
surgery on the spine and extremities. Board certified, Dr. Flood brings an extensive background in minimally
invasive spine surgery methods, such as endoscopic and laser spine surgery. He is fellowship trained in both adult
and pediatric spinal surgery.
Stem cells differ from ordinary cells in some significant ways. They have the unique abilities to self-renew and to
divide for a long period. Under certain conditions, stem cells can be induced to differentiate into specialized cells
with distinct functions including, but not limited to, cardiac cells, liver cells, fat cells, bone cells, cartilage cell
